This year I have been accidentally discovering the hard rock in the 70s that for some reason escaped me. The latest discovery is Jetliner by Steve Miller, thanks to Noah Baumbach. Despite writing about music, I am not exactly sure what I am looking for... [more inside]
Where can I find a digital copy of Bobby Loveless' 'Night Owl'? It's an old rock and roll tune (late fifties - early sixties) which was hugely popular in Louisiana (and throughout the Delta region). I have been looking for it on behalf of my father-in-law, who is a huge fan of this era's music? It's pretty obscure, I acknowledge.

I've always thought of early rock and country as being populated by men who might have done very bad things if they hadn't done music, and I want to hear some songs that prove it. Dale Hawins' Susie Q has that vibe. Charlie Feathers' That Certain Female seems like a song Mr. Blonde would bop to. I'd like to hear some other songs that feel just as... raw? Intimidating? I'm not quite sure. I think it's a "know it when I hear it" situation, and I'm hoping someone else has heard it and knows it.
What music videos depict the band somehow defeating an enemy with the power of their music? The Foo Fighters' recent "The Pretender" video brought the question to mind, but I know it's a frequently used idea. What other videos used this theme? [more inside]
Are there still rock groupies? [more inside]

Has anyone ever started a record label? I would like some advice (other than "Quit while you're ahead"). [more inside]
ConcertSeatsFilter: I neurotically, obsessively bought two tix to the same concert at Madison Square Garden in an effort to get the best seat I could. Both are good for different reasons, so I'm having a tough time deciding which one to use. [more inside]
Rock & Roll - I need to make a mix
tape CD of Rock & Roll tunes that pay tribute to and/or glorify Rock & Roll... something I believe no other genre does with quite the same fervor and dedication. Do you have any suggestions? [more inside]
